Things to see and do

A vibrant and dynamic city

Bristol is a vibrant and dynamic city with plenty to see and do and the Boathouse is perfectly situated to make the most of it.  You'll find it easy to pack your programme full of things to see and do. From history to magnificent scenery, the countryside and bustling city, from markets and caves, parks, museums, arts centres and theatres, everything is close by. At certain times during the year, the city hosts a range of major events and festivals.  All year round, its a great place to be.
